Hypable

If you surf the website Tumblr you might’ve seen a link go viral today with the announcement that a Friends reunion is coming in the form of a new season next fall. Unfortunately, this is not true.

The thing about the Internet is that you need to take everything you see floating around social media sites with a grain of salt, especially an article by a site with a goofy name like “starMedia.” The article goes on to state that NBC will premiere a new season of the popular sitcom Friends next fall, and it’s premise will revolve around our favorite group catching up and reuniting for the first time since 2004 when they last all saw each other in one place.

However, something smells a little fishy. The actors have repeatedly denied a reunion and in particular both Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry don’t seem interested. LeBlanc doesn’t want to dissapoint fans while Perry shot down those Thanksgiving episode reunions last year.

WBTV confirmed today that the rumor is not true. “Not accurate and not true,” they said.

One reason the rumor may have been so easily believed is the fact that Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow are getting back together to work on Kudrow’s webseries Web Therapy, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. It seems the world goes crazy as soon as two Friends co-stars reunite on screen, and suddenly we’re clamoring yet again for a Friends reunion!

Update: The show’s co-creator Marta Kauffman has officially stated that a reunion will never happen, specifically: “I’m going to clear this up—it’s not happening!” Kauffman spoke to E! while at the red carpet for Call Me Crazy.

She goes on to say, “Friends was about that time in your life when your friends are your family and once you have a family, there’s no need anymore,” and frankly we agree!

And finally, see what Jennifer Aniston had to say about it when she visited Ellen on April 17:

So that’s it folks, there’s your definite answer for all time. No Friends reunion is ever happening, and if your Facebook or Tumblr friends start spreading some rumor feel free to head ‘em over here for clarification!

    I really don’t understand why people want it to come back. Why would you want go beyond the perfect ending? I love the characters too but the thought of opening it all up again, when it can’t be improved upon, is just silly. There are very few shows that manage to maintain that level of quality over 10 years and it would be a crying shame to beat it into the ground for the sake of a few pointless extra moments with the characters.

    That’s beside the fact that the cast have spent nearly a decade trying to un-pigeon hole their career and move on to other things. Anyone who expects them to put themselves in that position again is kidding themselves.

    Based on the large amount of my friends who see these type of articles (or that tumblr picture on FACEBOOK) and believe them, I’m seriously concerned about their ability to do online research.

    I saw a post about this and knew I had to pop over to Hypable for the truth. =]

    “especially an article by a site with a goofy name like “starMedia.””

    Hypable is kind of a goofy name, too.

      Sighhhh, I knew someone would say that :(

        I like Hypable, and the goofiness of it makes it stand out :)

      • ProfessorP

        I have no problem with the name Hypable, just pointing out that this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

      • rabbit

        I think Hypable is a clever name! Bahumbug to all the haters.

        I love the name :)

        So I was gonna ask and now seems like a good time but where did the Hippo come from for Hypable? I love it and all but I just never understood where it came from lol

    aside from the fact that they keep saying no, no fewer than 4 of the cast have their own shows. like, it’s just common sense.

    Why do people keep creating these horrible rumors?! I love where Friends ended, but jeez I would be so excited still for a reunion, even though it would probably stink. Someone’s toying with my emotions!

  • Kay

    The day they do decide to reunite, will be a grand ole time.

  • Claire

    I’m embarrassed by the amount of extremely gullible people I am friends with on Facebook. This story just wont die and everyone is buying into it. Apparently none of my Facebook friends find it odd that ONE website with terrible grammer is making this claim.

    And every time someone reposts the story I die a little bit. I just want some kind of reunion special! Get the cast all together to reminisce and be in the same room. That’s really all I need!!!

    • Claire

      I’m sorry I sounded so angry here! Haha. I am just very passionate about Friends and I hate constantly getting my hopes up, even when I know a reunion won’t happen any time soon.

    while i agree that a reunion would probably ruin the ending… i also got offended about this rumour saying the characters havent seen each other since 2004. how would that be possible? between siblings and marriages and likely raising their children together to save on babysitting, these characters would still be seeing each other almost every day!

    • Samuel

      but perhaps not all 6 of them together, which is what the article was suggesting

      • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

        Exactly! Not all 6 in the same place at one time.

    I’m hoping for the 10 year they’ll all go on Ellen or another talk show for an reunion that way.
